SINCE 1972 Vincent Vallone has been continually working on the perfection of the BCD soft blast system. Working closely in the many aspects of safety in the Hotel industry and the Walt Disney World Company, good housekeeping magazine elected Vince Vallone to chair the slips and falls division for the National safety Council of American out of Itasca, Chicago. Working with the American Society of testing Materials (A.S.T.M.) The main stream recognized by all legal Standards, such as OSHA Standards, consumer products safety commission and many other entities on all type of surfaces from all type of bathtubs cast iron, Steel, Fiberglass, tiles, marble, granite and concrete pool deck walk ways etc. with outstanding results.
Once the KOHLER Company realized the extent of our process, they sent down several engineers to do further research on our process. We sent samples of several bathtubs back in 1981, After Kohler saw the unique process they hired the BCD Company to soft blast the entire 800 room Ohara Hilton Airport Hotel in Chicago, since the Kohler factory slip resistance method had failed in the warranty time frame.
Shortly after, The Hilton, Marriott, Omni, Hyatt, Holiday Inn and many other major hotel industry related Management companies, found Mr. Vallone’s process to be one of the best portable slip guards known to man. The process was then tested by Robert Kohr head of Marriott Safety for many years. Mr. Kohr has set standards across the Hotel industry and has made a huge impact with the many Corporations. Since then we have obtained the finest reputation in Hotel safety.
After testing BCD back in the late 70’s and early 80’s Mr. Robert Kohr set out to find the ultimate slip guard for tub’s and shower or bathing areas for the Marriott Corporation. Vince Vallone’s BCD soft blast process beat out 20 other companies in Washington DC and was awarded the gold metal of safety throughout Marriott international. Mr. Vallone has been sharing and implementing this process to date and wishes to have this as a method of protecting to as many travelers as possible.
